We didn't catch last night's 12/12/12 Sandy Relief concert, but based on reactions on Twitter and headlines everywhere from USA Today to Fox News, all we really missed was Kanye West wearing a leather skirt.

Despite the fact that he's done this before--multiple times--everyone freaked out. Some sample Tweets:

"Kanye must have swapped suitcases with Kim Kardashian."

"'Wear this black trash bag as a skirt. Then, just kinda run around the stage scaring white people' - Kanye West's manager before the show"

"Maybe a new item from the Kardashian collection?"

"I like Kanye's skirt. Also, his hoodie says "PYREX" cuz he must like to bake too."

"Does Kanye's skirt have a Twitter account yet?"

"Can someone explain why kanye is wearing a leather skirt right now in the #121212concert ?"

Um, because why not?

Famous people weighed in, too. Kim Kardashian thought it was just adorable:

"Awwwwwwww I'm so excited right now!!!!! He looks so cute!!"

Though, our favorite Tweet from the night comes from Jared Leto (really):

"Ok I admit it. I let kanye borrow my skirt."

Obviously overwrought with concern for Kanye's defenseless Givenchy skirt, someone did the noble (or totally predictable) thing and made it a Twitter account. It's not the most clever meme Twitter account ever made, but it exists.

While this wasn't the first instance of Kanye, a die-hard Riccardo Tisci fan, appearing publicly in a skirt, it seems to have been the most visible. So, we wonder: Could Kanye do for the leather skirt what he's done for the rottweiler tee?
